Toy Destroy - Toychestra [lcd030]
Toychestra is Toy Destroy's first release on Lm. Its tracks consist of childlike & sinister melodies over IDM'ish beats. The title of this EP represents its tracks very well, and is a great listen.

I like the combination evil synth and break beat. Dope. Make more :)

childlike and sinister is right
Track 1 sends shivers down my scalp. These are the the type of songs that will give your children nightmares, but the good kind of nightmares. Please make more. Bleepy quavery goodness.

"To the Delight of the Dancing Glass" starts out with a sharp, smooth, and short melodic introduction that falls right into place with the even sharper drumline. melody and beat alike grow with similar connotation to some songs off Drukqs. the delayed bells toward the end carry off nicely.
"Tributo Nonsensa" explores well proggrammed, thick chorused drumlines, shifty yet on point beat work, and rubbery vox/synth samples to create a neccessarily lengthy standout track for Toychestra. this could easily be thrown out on the dancefloor to see several happy faces form.
then, just to reassure you that Toy Destroy chose his name for a reason, the third and final track, "A Little Boy Game" seems to meander aimlessly by smashing the heck out of everything that comes into play with the expected video game blips, resonant high pitched squeeks, and once condensending then jokingly absurd vocal samples.
